Boys & Girls Club Kicks Off 2017 Campaign
A warm smile greeted Evelyn the first time she walked through our blue doors. She felt like she was at home. When she started school she spoke only Spanish. Other kids made her feel insecure because they stared whenever she spoke. Then she became a Club kid.
Our Club made her feel welcome. Through innovative programming and nurturing relationships with our staff she came out of her shell. She tried new things even when she wasn’t good at them. She grew so confident that as soon as she was old enough she started working at our front desk and prided herself on answering the phone “the right way.”
Since 1990, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hutchinson has specialized in offering local youth like Evelyn opportunities to grow as leaders, live a healthy lifestyle, succeed in academics and future careers—opportunities that exist because of the Hutchinson community. Our Boys & Girls Club inspires growth in 1,000 youth each year and has served more than 15,000 young people since 1990.
A 2015 study by the Institute for Social Research and the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan found that for every $1 invested in Boys & Girls Clubs that $9.60 in economic benefits are returned to the individual and society. Each gift to our Club offers a big return on investment for the Hutchinson community.
Community support allows youth to have positive, life-shaping experiences that are not afforded for them any place else.
To continue meeting the needs of members now and in the future, our Club is kicking off its 2017 annual campaign to support day-to-day operations. The goal is to raise $125,000 by May 31st.
